If you have cavities, you will need to have them repaired as soon as possible in order to prevent further dental problems. While all cavities are repaired with fillings, there are many types of fillings available to choose from. Dentists can use different types of materials for Fredericksburg dental fillings. The type of material the dentist uses varies and depends on each patient’s individual needs and situation. Gold, composite resins, glass ionomer fillings (made of glass & acrylic), and dental amalgams (silver fillings) are all possible materials that could be used. Gold filings; also called onlays or inlays, consist of a combination of gold, copper and other metals. Composite fillings are tooth colored and are preferred by many people because they’re not noticeable. However, composite fillings are not durable enough to fill large cavities. They’re sufficient for small to medium-sized cavities and can handle the pressure of moderate chewing. Amalgams or silver fillings are durable enough to fill large cavities.
